    I am Just starting on the roof and cut a test rafter. The eaves will be flush so rafters cut to wall then fascia and gutter but I just realised that as I have built both skins to same height I have an issue with the end of the rafter and need to trim it to sit above outer skin.

    Will the attached be acceptable?

    Thanks

    You don't have much depth to fit the facia securely.

    Thanks gonch69, No soffits thankfully.

    Thanks woody, that’s my main concern, I need to double check but I think I’ve will have just over 100mm on the end when trimmed close to block.

    As long as BC doesn’t have an issue I should be able to work around

    Could you just not add some wooden batten vertically to the side of the rafter ends, you can make these as deep as your fascia... you won’t need to remove any blocks.
